The Georgia Cancer Center M. Bert Storey Research Building provides quality research space to promote multidisciplinary collaborations and translational research, which is essential to creating an environment that promotes innovation.

Our research approach supports important National Cancer Institute goals:

Ensuring every cancer patient has access to the newest and most innovative clinical trials in the nation

  • Clinicians and researchers work together to initiate new research protocols based on the clinician’s interaction with the patient
  • Each cancer patient receives personalized treatment through the interaction of the multidisciplinary team of clinicians and allied health professionals

The main building houses the basic science teams with four floors of open concept-lab space, shared resources and special equipment, such as flow cytometry, radiation therapy research platforms and quantitative pathology imaging as well as administrative offices and meeting spaces for seminars, lectures, training sessions and community-wide forums on cancer-related topics.

The Collaborator Corridor is a new addition designed to facilitate communication and collaboration between cancer researchers and clinicians, with a goal of promoting translational research in order to develop the next generation of cancer diagnostics and treatments.
